The Calcasieu Parish 4-H Shooting Sports Program is a long standing tradition in our parish. Every new member is asked to attend an introductory meeting in October of the current school year. Here we will discuss everything offered through our program. Information will be available as to a time and place of this meeting in the October Cloverleaf as well as our Facebook page. We adhere to the goals and objectives of the state and national 4-H Shooting Sports Programs.
According to the LSU AgCenter's Louisiana 4-H Environmental and Outdoor Skills web page:
The 4-H Shooting Sports program is an educational activity to teach firearm safety to 4-H youth and to help them improve their marksmanship and help them enjoy outdoor activities. The 4-H Shooting Sports program is open to 4-H'ers in the 4th-12th grades.
The program encompasses the initiative goals of volunteer leadership, capacity-building for youth and families, and environmental stewardship with commitments from the Louisiana State University AgCenter. Louisiana 4-H Shooting Sports is an active program that is attractive to both youth and adults. It uses positive learning and interaction with youth and adult role models. The disciplines are modeled after the National 4-H Shooting Sports Program and are administered by nationally certified state leaders consisting of extension personnel and volunteers.
The mission of the Louisiana 4-H Shooting Sports Program is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes so that they may become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.
